Support the Second Collections
Throughout the year the faithful are asked to contribute to their parishes through a weekly collection to help cover the cost of operations and support ministries. Sometimes, the parish will take up a second collection with a specific purpose. Many of these are national collections coordinated by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). The bishops of the United States have established the national collections to support the Church’s works of social justice, evangelization and education, both domestically and around the globe.
Some of these collections are strictly local and will be distributed within the diocese.
